    So recently I went through a little dilemma. I found out that my friend who claimed to be truthful, was actually a backstabbing lying snake in the grass. All through April, he treated me like shit ever since he got back from work (he was laid off). And I finally had enough of him and believing him when he basically got with the girl that he knew that I was trying to get with.

    So I texted him saying I'm not doing anything anymore with him, and he kept calling me a coward because I wouldn't explain what. Honestly, it shouldn't be that hard to figure out he screwed up. He kept going on and on insulting me. I said if he ever talks to me like that again, I'll knock him the fuck out. He then got on the defensive, kept saying he's going to come over and we're gonna talk this out, or he's gonna hurt me. I don't back down, I said to come out, but don't bring his bodyguard who he was getting to do his talking and hide behind, the girl I liked. And then all of a sudden, he says he doesn't have time to be wasting on me.

    And before you guys say "lol he doesnt have time for you". This is a guy who sleeps from 3am to 5pm, and from 5pm to 10pm sits in a coffee shop parking lot with a bunch of friends in their vehicles doing nothing.

    Has anybody been in a situation where you stand up for yourself and you get called the coward, or an actual real fight?

    Been in quite a few fights myself, a lot of them over really stupid stuff. I seem to be good at anticipating another persons moves, so I don't really need to fight so much as dodge and use their momentum (loleveryfightingmovieeverright?). But hey, it works!

    Haven't been in my fight, nor do I really want to. In a fight, I'm the type of person that they throw a punch, I'll probably side step and grab their arm and wrench it back enough, nearly breaking it, just so they know that I will not limit myself. Yes, I know I can limit myself to not cause serious injury, but my natural instinct is shortest route to ending things, and in a fight, the shortest route is probably breaking their arm so they don't bother anymore.

    And I've been called coward enough times. It's one of those things where they know they have nothing, so they result to petty insults. It just shows to their character, and in the end, you know where you stand, and 10 years from then, unless they've learned anything, they'll still be bottom feeders while you're craping out what they're eating on your golden toilet because you've got a well enough paying job for said goldent toilet.

    This is pretty much what's happening. I explained shit over a text like they wanted, and I get called a coward and everything. I say to come say it to my face, then all of a sudden he backs down. He also kept twisting around my words in my text and said it to somebody else who got upset and called me, the girl that I liked, so I said to her "im not dealing with you". Hung up. And now he keeps big talking around me. I just said "I don't care what you say, I texted you you wanted, you twisted my words around and even denied the screenshot of my text to you, and you're backing down from a fight. I can walk away knowing I didn't have to lie or anything, too bad you cant".

    I've been in plenty of fights, but never really anything personal, unless 6th grade counts, haha.
    Most of the fights I get into are just "wrong place, right time."
    If it's personal, it tends to just be a verbal fight that never escalates because anyone who knows me personally, knows i'd kick their ass 7 ways to sunday.

    I been in many fights, none of which I was angry as much as the other guy in the situation. The guy I fight is usually the one who wants to throw down. My biggest fear is losing a fight, I have no idea how far someone will go, but I am a nice guy. Once someone falls I stop.

    Yeah I've never been in a fight. Usually I'm able to talk myself out of it, and anybody who knows me knows that I am simply too nice and that it takes a lot for me to get angry enough to want to throw a punch. But with this person backing down and hiding behind the slut... cough i mean .. no no I mean slut, hiding behind, either way it's a win win for me. Either I have still have him as a friend after, or I lose someone who is a backstabber. Win win for me.

    I started swing dancing a while ago and I would go with this girl I liked who is now my girlfriend. It was one of the first times I had been dancing and this guy comes up to her and barely lifts her up over his shoulders for some reason. then he puts her down and flips her off with both hands. I figured he they knew each other and he was just being weird but I could tell she was uncomfortable. I barely pushed him back and told him not to do that. Then he called me "skinny boy" and wanted to fight me. I said "just calm down." Apparently he told my girlfriend before I even knew her that he used drugs so I assumed he was high. I almost wish he would have punched me or something so I could fight back. I'm not really a fighter but he was much less of a fighter than me. He was kinda short and kinda fat and i'm kinda tall and kinda athletic and I have an older brother who is 6'8'' who I always used to fight when I was younger. Anyways nothing ever happened and he didn't even notice me next time I saw him which supports my belief that he was high.
    Don't pick a fight when it's not necessary. If that guy tried to talk with the girl who you have been interested in then you are better off without him. The best revenge is living happily, but you shouldn't try to live happily for the sake of revenge.

    One time a guy called me a coward so I roundhouse kicked him in the face. He's being treated in the hospital for amnesia now.



    Seriously though, the best way to counter a guy who calls you a coward, is to point at his face and laugh as hard as you can before walking away. Psychological fights are a lot more potent and dangerous than a physical fight.

    I've unfortunately been in many fights. Something I'm not particularly proud of. Out here on the streets and in prison. I've won some and l've lost some. It's just the way it goes. No matter how bad you think you are, there's always somebody out there that's badder.

    If this is your first fight, the biggest thing I've learned is not to go into it cocky thinking you're just going to pulverize the guy. Thinking the guy can't fight or is a wimp can get you into trouble. Just go into it as pissed off as you possibly can be and with as much adrenaline pumping as you can muster. In my experience being in that type of mind frame is the best thing you can do before you walk into one.

    But anyways, from you've described this guy kind of seems like a bitch. He'd rather resort to petty insults. So I would personally just let the insults roll off my back and forget about it. But if he ever does decide to step to you, then give it your all. Another thing to remember is that girls come and go(trust me on this), friends are usually there for the long haul. So I would definitely try to clear all this up without have to resort to punches. Because a fight can definitely ruin a friendship...

    I'm normally the quiet giant type, It was in 5th grade and some kid started saying something stuff about me so I made an offensive comment to him, he got mad and slapped me in the face. Note, he started shit talking, and hit me first.

    Within the next minute he was on the floor and I was punching the living shit out of him. I got suspended for that day, and him a week for starting it.

    I haven't been fucked with ever in my life after that, teased for being a big kid, but it was all laughs in school for me.

    I've lost some fights before, but I really haven't gotten into a fight since I was 9 years old. Fighting is for children, not adults.

    I'd advise against fighting this guy. Doesn't sound like it is really worth it.

    But if you must, keep in mind that every fight has the potential to end with one of you seriously injured or dead. A blow to the wrong place or the trauma from hitting the floor at the wrong angle; these things do happen. So personally before I fight my internal dialogue has always gone something like this, "One of us might not walk away from this and I'm sure as fuck not going to be that guy." If you can't hype yourself up to that point and aren't willing to quite literally fight like you are fighting for your life then I'd suggest you not fight at all.

    Yes I've been in fights, no you shouldn't fight him. This guy will sue the shit out of you given the chance, I've seen it happen. (Thankfully I've been able to evade court.)

    Yeah I've been in a few "fights" before but never anything physical.

    I believe that fighting doesn't really solve any problems, its mainly a pride/egotistical thing.

    Words are just words, only you know the truth and yes they hurt sometimes but you get over it quickly.

    The only thing fighting results in is someone getting hurt or getting arrested.
    And honestly if that guy does come over and threatens to hit you or whatever I would just call the police.
    Assuming you guys are over 18 I mean.
